Actually that was a bit cynical! Laughing

We find the meaning to life in our relationship w/God, w/out that there is no meaning, as King Solomon taught.

That may have been true of me in the past, but I'm trusting God can change my purpose. Up untill this point in my life it has been impossible for me to abstain from porn and self abuse for very long, it has been almost a month since I have yeilded to either. May God continue to work His grace in my life, and may I continue to recieve it not in vain, may all of us do so.

This is a really good topic and something I ponder on a daily basis.
And yes I like Mark's tongue in cheek answer.

Seriously though I wonder everyday 'What the hell is the point of all this?"
You work to buy crap you don't need , food and shelter that you do. You are born helpless only to eventually become helpless again.
Everything in the world is only temporary.
The only thing that seems to stay is pain and suffering.

Don't read into this and think I'm suicidal, I'm not. I just don't really see the point in it all. Without joy, life is meaningless and it's been a long time since I had any joy in my life.
Everyday is just an endless procession of minutes. Sleep is the biggest joy in my life.
But as a therapist told me : "if nothing is worth living for, than nothing is worth dying for"

When the really dark thoughts flitter through my mind I remind myself

"If I quit then the world wins. And the world's been trying to bring me down since I could crawl but I'm not gonna let it win"

There is a teaching in the RCC about what to do w/our pain, unite it to Christ's suffering for the salvation of souls. The idea is to offer it up to God as penance. Some think this is stupid, but if we're going to be in pain anyway, why waste it? We can also pray for your pain to subside, be more tolorable.

It's hard to do but it is a really good idea.
My Aunt calls suffering on earth carrying your cross. She says that everyone carries a cross at sometime, it matters how you do it.

Can I share one of my regular grim quotes? The day I start quoting stuff about flowers and butterflies you guys will know I have officially checked out and am headed to the bouncy walled room.
Anyway, I was flipping through the book As I Lay Dying. I love that book on so many levels.
Anyway Addie says this:
"My father used to say the purpose for living is to get ready to stay dead a long time"

I thought of this topic when I was flipping through the book and came to that chapter.

hey, i totally agree with you, i can't figure it out either. its lik, ur born, for lik the first 10 years of ur life u culdn't care less about anything cept sleeping eating and having friends. then everything gets all ... messed up and confusing and u dont no where the hell u even r anymore further more the meaning of life. i just try not to think about that (not that it works. at. all.) and pretend i actually care what happens anymore. can someone pls tell me why we are here? and what we r supposed to do? and what happens when we arent here anymore? cuz no matter how many ppl i ask they never no. its really pissing me off. and not precisly helping my already depressed mood either.
